Rohrer Corp., a retail-packaging designer and manufacturer and portfolio company of Wellspring Capital Management, has acquired Jay Packaging Group, a specialty printing and thermoforming company.

The deal will strengthen the combined capabilities of the firms in high-end printing and decorating, carded blister, thermoformed and folded carton packaging. Jay delivers products to a spectrum of industries including niche packaging for beauty, luxe, home and health markets.

“Jay Packaging Group is an innovative company with talented employees,” said Steve Wirrig, CEO of Rohrer Corp. “It’s exciting to expand our operations to the East Coast and invest in the people, plants and profitability of both businesses. Together, we can provide our customers with best of both worlds – unbeatable packaging solutions through Rohrer’s ezComboSM programs and custom printing and packaging options through Jay Packaging Group.”

 “I am proud of our team, and the business we have built over the years,” commented Richard Kelly, CEO of Jay Packaging. “I am confident the integration of Jay Packaging Group into Rohrer’s network will make both organizations stronger, and position us for further investment, growth and job creation.”
